We’re going to be staying at the Gran Bahia Bavaro and wondering where the best (& closest) place to buy larimar & silver jewellery would be? Anything to watch out for when buying larimar?
Larimar jewellery is all over the place in DR.Any of the jewellery stores,even flee markets .They will try to get the most $ out of you they can,but you can usually beat them down.The last time we were there I got a beautiful bracelet & ring ,larimar & amber.You can get a nice silver ring with larimar stone for $25.The jewellery stores will be more expensive.
Hi carrottop128: Thanks for your response. Do you have to watch the larimar for being fake, as I’ve read that the amber can be just plastic and you need to watch for that. Just wondering if it’s the same problem to watch for with larimar.
Yes, you have to watch for fake larimar just like most precious or semi-precious stones. Take a look at this link: http://reviews.ebay.com/Spotted-FAKE-Larimar-on-Ebay_W0QQugidZ10000000005878847
Thanks, off to have a look.
